This one is going to be a allrounder with all kinds of features....no other smart phone can beat that...abt the os and its interface thats not a big deal....U r gonna like the interface for a month or 2 then after that every thing boils down to the features...usb ondago,fm transmttrr,nfc,belle (much improved with FP1),microsd supprt,lets not talk abt the pure view technlogy other manufacturers r gonna strt crying if we srt that conversation....
hunter, 28 Feb 2012will nokia stop making symbian?? because i hate it, no doubt in earlier stage of the smartphon... moreIt was the efficiency of symbian was the reason why pureview was built into it. as of this time no other OS can handle it efficiently. unbelievable but is true..
Nelson-GSII, 29 Feb 2012I definitely don't like Nokia and you can bet I hate symbian more than any other OS in the wor... morehave you used the latest Symbian?
it sounds like you're one of those former n97 users ;)
laxis, 29 Feb 2012android, ios and windows will take atleast a year or two to beat the n8 in photography. It wil... moreAgree With You. The Problem Is Nokia Launched 41 MP Camera Phone It's Nothing. But When I Phone 4S Launched 8 MP Camera Phone It's Awesome They Are Happy With It. Iphone Fan Boys And Android User Even Don't Know What's True Mutitasking They Are The Haters Of Symbian...
[deleted post]It does have video stabilization but Nokia hasnt implemented yet as they're having issues with it so that's probably why gsmarena hasn't listed it
Anonymous, 28 Feb 2012808 is the last Symbian phone from nokia.. Lets rock Nokia guys.. even they would be ending ... moreNo it's not..!!
Nokia will give 3 more devices with Symbian OS..
One in Q2 with 1.3Ghz (like 808,without this monster camera)with Carla OS, and 2 (maybe next year)with dual core for Donna OS..
nokia should increase display resoulation of this phone..other then that everything is perfect..
its nice to see a symbian phone at top of popular chart.i never imagined of buying another symbian device.but this one i will get it also new os looks beautiful.
People who keep saying bad things about Symbian really have any idea how good is it. IT'S ABSOLUTELY NOT DEAD, YET.
great phone wait for its launching. best thing is nokia launching this phone.....
my 1st impression on understanding the device? good work GSMArena! wow Nokia you are indeed back in game and will beat everybody... was this feeling permanent? not really!
these are things which were easily noticeable, hence easily commented:
1) looks: definitely not premium... if Nokia calls it N8 successor, then the looks dept. should have given it similar looks if not better... my opinion? it sucks! Red is interesting though!
2) screen resolution? what is Nokia thinking?
3) battery? what is Nokia thinking?
4) Call management > Contacts > Detailed contact information... if it is the same as the one on Belle, then sorry boss, even my Samsung E2232 DUOS has better management of contacts and call log features (where can you find up to 7 features under Call Logs?)
5) no camera shutter?
should i go for N9 or 808... ummmm... thinking...
I definitely don't like Nokia and you can bet I hate symbian more than any other OS in the world... However the camera and its advanced features are so damn amazing that I wouldn't mind, at all, owing this phone!!! If only Nokia would have released it with the WP 7 OS and with some better specs, hardware wise (like for example the usual 1,4ghz single core processor, along with a WVGA resolution screen), I would trade my Samsung GSII for this Nokia 808 asap!!!
